Cookie parties and Georgia Street Slices

Sorry it’s been a little quiet! It’s been crazy around here, getting ready for Christmas and finishing up last minute work things. I’m just about to bake cookies with my friend Jamie. Last night I made up a batch of my very favorite, Georgia Street Slices. My great-grandma Nowlin started making them ages ago; I’m guessing she found the recipe in a magazine in the ’50s or ’60s, because last year when I searched for the recipe online I couldn’t find it and had to ask my mom for it. So here they are! No photos of it (I don’t have my camera here at the moment)–instead here are some pictures from last Christmas. (Rufus didn’t get any cookies but he sure tried) These things are amazing, and not even that hard to make. Basically they’re no-bake chocolate bars with vanilla in the middle, almost like candy and super addicting. I’m trying to spread the recipe around the world!

Georgia Street Slices

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
5 tbs cocoa
1 egg
2 cups chopped up vanilla wafers
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbs vanilla pudding mix
1/2 tsp vanila
1 can condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Bottom later: Melt over hot water (double boiler): 1/2 cup butter + 1 1/4 cups sugar + 5 tbs cocoa, mix well. Take off heat and add one well beaten egg, mix well. Next add 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs, mix. Spread into the bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 inch pan and chill.

Middle layer: Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbs dry vanilla pudding mix, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup soft butter, 1/4 cup condensed milk. Spread over bottom layer and chill.

Top layer: Mix over double boiler: 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup condensed milk. Mix well and spread over middle layer. Chill.

Hope you like them!

    Hi, a long time reader and first time commenter… I’ve enjoyed your blog for a while now.

    Your bars sound a lot like something called “Nanaimo Bars”, a Canadian treat. :)

    Long time reader, first time poster!

    My mom makes these and we call them Napoleans. She’s actually making them tomorrow! When I was a kid I used to peel apart the layers and eat them individually.

    I love the ribbon tied ponytail! I wish I had nice full, curly hair that would look half as nice tied up in a ponytail! And your red plaid and velvet collar holiday ensemble is so lovely. These no-bake bars sound crazy! I might even try to make some tonight. I was thinking that they also sound like these Canadian no-bake bars called Nanaimo. They’re super rich and insanely delicious in a way that makes me feel like I’m going to pass out if I have more than one…

    I’m making these right now to serve to students as an end-of-semester celebration tomorrow! I love family recipes; thanks for sharing. I also thought of you because I saw REMEMBER THE NIGHT in beautiful 35mm last night at my local Cinematheque. It really is one of the best holiday movies!
